Vacancy Description

There are vacancies for a Non-executive Director (NED) and an Associate NED at Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust (NGH). These are exceptional opportunities to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior level experience in one of the following areas:

  • Recent, relevant finance experience in a large and complex organisation with the capacity to Chair the Audit Committee, preferably with a financial qualification.
  • experience operating at senior or board level and/or expertise of workforce development, leading organisational and cultural change.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role.  These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model.

Applicants should live in or have strong connections with Northamptonshire.
